LIMBO, the new album from New Orleans songwriter, rapper and producer Pell, will be released in partnership with Dave Sitek’s (TV on the Radio) Federal Prism. Today, he is previewing the track “Café Du Monde.”
Sitek partnered with Pell on the new album after hearing and remixing his track 11:Eleven. The two began trading ideas before meeting face to face in Los Angeles and getting in the studio together.
